The Real Green Gardener Team
The Real Green Gardener

I am a Qualified Garden Designer and Horticulturalist and the Director of The Real Green Gardener. I am a member of the Institute of Garden Design and have a RHS certificate in Horticulture and an Advanced Diploma in Garden Design. I have 15 years experience working in some of the finest gardens in Chelsea, Kensington, Notting Hill and Hampstead, including several designed by Gold Medal Winners at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Growing up in South Africa surrounded by a fantastic variety of tropical flora and spending time in my British Granny Roz’s Rose garden instilled a love of plants from an early age. For three years I was Head Gardener at a North London Memorial garden designed by William Robinson. Working in his garden truly inspired me and fired my passion for plants and natural spaces.

The Real Green Gardener evolved from the desire to work with our natural environment, designing and building beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy.

The Importance of Professional Garden Maintenance
31st May 2024
Whether you have worked hard to get your garden perfect or paid a professional to do it, once it looks pristine it will need some maintenance to stay that way. As much as we might wish they would just stay as they are, nature gets a hold of it and plants, shrubs and grass start growing. However, professional garden maintenance services keep your garden looking just right without you even having to lift a finger.
